The first race of the three day festival at Aintree comes in the way of a Grade One contest with the Devenish Manifesto Novices' Chase and we have gone win the mare La Bague Au Roi to land the spoils.
The Warren Greatrex trained eight year old has been one of the best novice chasers of the season being unbeaten on all of her four starts over fences and landing back to back Grade One contests in the process.
She has beat some superb horses this season like Topofthegame and Santini in the Kauto Star Novices Chase at Kempton and they went on to frank that form in the RSA Chase at Cheltenham.
Her latest start has also been franked when she went over to Ireland and won a Grade One at Leopardstown in a gritty performance with the second that day also going on to win nicely next time out.
Arguably the form horse across the three day meeting and will be very tough to beat getting a mares allowance off the boys and also she will be fresh for not going to the Cheltenham festival.
